What causes this kind of wear? (tires)

Where did racism come into the conversation?

I sure hope you didnít associate the OPís ďpovertyĒ comment with race, as that would be racist.

Cheap Chinese made tires isnít a racist statement, itís a reference to the inferior quality of tires from overseas.

Please donít try to make a vehicle forum into a ďwokeĒ disaster area.

Are you assuming because the OP said he was poor at the moment there is a racial component?

I sure hope not, as that would be racist.

No, because he said cheap Chinese tires. I doubt anybody could argue the fact that Chinese tires are cheap/inexpensive. Feelings are another matter. IMHO facts donít care about feelings.

I never took it as racist.

Although I think the OP has left the chat, my additional 2 cents are that he is being cheap and only looking at price and not consequences.

First step I would do in his shoes are step away from the keyboard and go get some new tires. Period. All of his hemming and hawing over the manufacturer code, age of his tires and the fact that the sidewalls are seriously compromised donít address his situation.

He needs to put on his big boy pants and get tires. I certainly hope he isnít riding on those tires or the other set of (bad) tires on the roads. Heís putting himself and his family as well as others in danger.

Sometimes, you gotta suck it up and be a man.

The "R8" in your code means your tire was made in the Sumitomo plant in Thailand.
